Week #86 "Prayer is the Passport to Peace"

April 11, 2016

Hey Mom and Dad!

This week was super fast! A ton of different stuff happened so that's probably why. I taught the district meeting on Tuesday and it went well. We were in AC for the first time in my mission so my back wasn't wet like it usually is. 

I'm learning more about my companion and he is learning more about me. Our personalities aren't much of a match haha but we are doing good and hopefully our companionship will get better as time goes on. We have a few investigators but they all have issues but we are continuing to help them.

We had a cool experience last Friday. I went to DLC which was fun to see all of the missionaries but it was kind of a boring meeting. We came home and as my companion and I planned I feel like we has a disagreement over what we planned but nothing serious. It was kind of awkward as we went out because I was worried about where we would go since we didn't have an appointment at the time. I led and we walked into a neighborhood that I thought looked nice :) we walked straight to a house and I talked to this guy and he ended up being really nice and very interested in the restoration and about the church. He even said he was hoping for someone like us to come and help give him direction in his life. After that happened I was convinced we were led by the spirit to his house because it was a big neighborhood and we walked directly to his house not even knowing why. The rest of the day went great. 

On Sunday we went on a split with some members. I took 3 with me and they were fun to work with. Its always a confidence booster to lead the area and do well. We also have two new housemates this week that came in named Elder Dean who's from Utah and brand new in the mission and a Filipino Elder Named Talactac. It feels good to be the old missionary in the house because its the first time I've been around new missionaries since I was the new guy.

I ran at the church today and we ate at McDonald's for lunch. So that's about all the excitement I can report on this week!
Love and Miss you all!
Love Elder Rasmussen
